Yesterday, I thought I was doing a little better. I was excited because I ate 1.5 burritos for dinner (homemade, so not gigantic). I have only had a handful of “real” meals the last few weeks, eating mostly just buttered rice or noodles or drinking Ensure. Unfortunately, either my body hated the burritos or it really is having a hard time with this new medication. I took it this morning like you’re supposed to (30 minutes before your first meal, on an empty stomach)… And after just a few moments my stomach was crampy, gassy, and painful. Not sure if it’s simple because I woke up more and noticed it, or if it’s the medication.
Either way, I’m definitely missing my first class because sitting up has been pretty brutal. Hopefully I can get to my second class.

bleck. Feel better! I’d have a hard time with meds on an empty stomach. I’ve had morning sickness since…1984. My stomach doesn’t like getting up any more than I do!
I really hate medication that has to be taken on an empty stomach too, but this one doesn’t hurt for a few hours… I think. I wake up really nauseous everyday too, so it can be hard to tell 😛
